August 17 - Beats By Elvis

DesignCrowd, a crowdsourcing marketplace for freelance designers, asked its 475,000 users from across the globe to Photoshop the world's 'most famous and missed pop culture icons' into modern advertisements and campaigns as a part of its recent contest.

The winning design was created by Joel Krebs, a 29-year-old graphic designer from Salem, Oregon, who used his photo editing skills to imagine Elvis Presley modeling a pair of red Beats by Dre headphones. Other entries with Elvis Presley have him advertise for H&M, jeans and kitchen appliances.

Audrey Hepburn having breakfast at McDonald's and Marilyn Monroe using her star power to market Louis Vuitton handbags are just two of the playful campaigns from a unique photo project that reimagines beloved pop culture icons from previous eras as stars of today's ads. 

Yvonne Graig Died

Yvonne Craig passed away at her home in Pacific Palisades, surrounded by her immediate family and comforted by Hospice yesterday night. She died from complications brought about from breast cancer that had metastasized to her liver. She is survived by her husband, Kenneth Aldrich, her sister Meridel Carson and nephews Christopher and Todd Carson.  

Yvonne Craig began her theatrical career as the youngest member of The Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo and toured for three years when she was accidentally discovered by John Ford’s son Patrick and cast for the lead in the movie The Young Land.

This was quickly followed by many years of film and television including two movies with Elvis Presley (It Happened at the World’s Fair and Kissin Cousins). However, she is probably best known for originating the role as Batgirl in the 1966 TV series of Batman, or for her character “Marta” from the third season of Star Trek.
